New ‘Rock The Vote’ video featuring Lil Jon and Lena DunhamPosted by J Craig on October 7, 2014
Rock the Vote has just released their new ad in attempt to turn out voters on November 4th. The ad features Lil Jon and Lena Dunham talking about legalizing marijuana and turning out for reproductive rights. The entire video covers a host of liberal issues, but tries to market towards the youth and the millennial generation.
The video, entitled ”Turn Out for What” is a parody of Lil Jon’s hit song “Turn Down for What”. It stars Lil Jon and featuring Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, E.J. Johnson, Darren Criss, Sophia Bush, Ireland Baldwin, Devendra Banhart, Ioanna Gika and Gabriel Valenciano.
“The work that Rock The Vote does is incredible,” Lil Jon said in a statement. “It’s cool for me to collab with such an iconic organization.”
The ad features an overly excited Lena Dunham dancing across the screen with no pants on while various celebrities tout their liberal topics they are passionate about.
Rock the Vote spokesperson Audrey Gelman told The Daily Beast that Lil Jon “took zero convincing” to do the video. “We wanted to make a PSA that wouldn’t make people hit the snooze button,” she added.
Let us not forget Lil Jon during the 2012 Presidential election when he asked “everybody” to dismiss Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney:
The video was released on Tuesday and has started a hash-tag buzz on Twitter: #TURNOUTFORWHAT
